We have been waiting all summer long for some real hot weather and we finally are getting it this week. Today is supposed to hover around 100 degrees, the air thick with humidity. Normally you would think that a woman who could go into labor at any second would not want this kind of heat, but seeing how this summer has been mostly around the low 70s, I'm welcoming the heat. Of course, it did make mass rather difficult this morning as our huge, old church does not have air conditioning. I thought for one brief moment that I was actually seeing Jesus, but I managed to plow through and not pass out for the whole hour.
If the thunderstorms can hold off the boys will actually get a chance to play in their pudgie pool this afternoon. I really hope they can, because I wouldn't mind sitting in some cold water right now too.
Hmm. I just read my title over and realized I probably had you all thinking that baby is finally here. Hehe. Sorry. She did manage to wait until Todd got back home (thankfully) but I think she is planning on waiting a bit longer than that now. So far I haven't felt much in the way of contractions so it may be a few days yet. Which is fine by me. Whenever she is ready. I know I am very uncomfortable right now and everything, but I can definitely put off labor for a while longer. Oh yes. And sleep deprivation too. I am savoring these last few "lazy" days while I've got them. But I promise to keep you all updated as soon as I start to suspect changes.
For now I am going to take a little snooze on the couch while the boys are napping and then hopefully dip my tootsies in the boys' pool a little later. I may even treat myself to some ice tea to celebrate the heat. Woohoo! Let's hear it for summer!
